Really nice room, with lovely outside patio area, amazing to sit and hear bird song and water sounds. Great location on the edge of town, walking distance to everything. Very friendly owners. Would definitely stay again.
We don't normally stay in Motel in Akaroa, we hire a bach. This was a different occasion and we were very pleasantly surprised by La Rochelle Motel. Super-friendly and very helpful host who was genuinely happy to welcome us and chat - nothing forced or artificial, a guy who seems to be a good guy. We also loved the small terrace out the back of the unit - it faces onto a stream and has screens / trees so it's separated from the others. Not a big area, but definitely very pleasant to look out on and the birdsong filters through to wake you in the morning. Spotlessly clean and fresh with everything you could require for a stay.
We have just returned from a wonderful couple of days staying at this motel in Akaroa. It was a birthday present from my family and it could not have been better. the hosts are so friendly, helpful and welcoming. The whole of the pandemic regulations were handled expertly and we didn't feel at all restricted. The room was so clean and well appointed - very comfy bed. Would definitely stay here again.
What a awesome place to stay and great hospitality by the owners who go out of their way to meet any needs you have. Quiet and peaceful. Amenities were really good, could have asked for anything better. I would highly recommend a stay with these guys.
Really enjoyed our stay here, the bed was so comfortable, after a sleepless night at our previous hotel in Christchurch, it was so good to be able to get a good nights sleep in Akaroa. I loved the privacy of the outdoor area, and the place was lovely and clean, very riendly and helpful owner.
First stop on our road trip around the Island and it proved a good choice. Nice modern upstairs unit with balcony and bonus Bell birds. Everything spotlessly clean with a modern feel. Only stayed one night but it certainly served its purpose. Brisk walking distance of the town proper, everything is accessible. Trevor (a Taranaki native) was friendly and helpful. Only negative comment would be the price, it seemed expensive when compared with the rest of our trip but that may be just an Akaroa thing, which I imagine is fairly popular. Nice dinner in the Maderia Hotel, just down the road, seperate review.
Very nice friendly hosts welcomed us and the apartment was spacious and in a good position, a short walk to nearby restaurants and a pleasant walk along the water's edge to the main village area. I recommend this place
We had a very nice two night stay at La Rochelle Motel. The room was a good size and very clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. The small area outside our room (#5, ground floor) was lovely. Trevor our host was great, very friendly and helpful. The motel is in a great location and we would stay there again if we return to Akaroa.
We received a wonderful welcome from Trevor. He was very friendly. The unit was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our short stay. A short walk to all that Akaroa has to offer. Would definitely stay here again.
Very comfortable place to stay. Hosts are so friendly and accommodating. Nothing was a bother. Rooms are very clean and tidy. We will definitely be back. Within walking distance of the shops, restaurants and bars.
